I would really appreciate your help if you can refer me to a useful tutorial, as I have found none.
Thanks so much!
This tutorial always works on stock Gingerbread 2.3.x:
1- Download "siyah-2.6.14-CWM.zip" and extract the .tar file using any archiver.
2- Flash the .tar file using ODIN 1.85 (first, put your phone into download mode by turning it off and pressing Volume down + home button + Power button), and you need to select the PDA field for the .tar file.
You are now rooted on stock 2.3 and you have CWM which can possibly flash some new ROMs but notice that if you want to flash 4.4 KitKat ROMs, you need to upgrade your recovery to latest CWM 126.96.36.199 (188.8.131.52 should work too). Good luck
